Open letter to my sister Pt. 3

whatever happens in life is fine- you just have to trust that.

Dear Sister,
So you left the land of dreams and opportunities,
To be in a place of broken promises and drug habits.
Your chances go down for graduating high school.
Your chances go up for teen pregnancy.
But FUCK the statistics.
You can do this.
You can grow up to be a wonderful and accomplished person
But now...
Now, you have to fight for yourself.
You have no one left to fight for you,
So its all you...
I can try and help, but being far away leaves me at a disadvantage.
And just know that nothing lasts forever.
Except love,
and then only certain kinds of love
Okay, only my love lasts forever.
This is it, kid.
This is your shot, show us what you have
Prove to us, that you can't and won't be swayed by peer pressure.

Love Always,
Your big sister
